Make Up Shake Up is the first Summertime short. The animation primarily focuses on Rarity and Applejack.

Summary

Shortly before the start of the Fall Formal, Rarity finishes getting dressed and putting on her makeup. She offers to put makeup on Applejack as well, but she declines. After some encouragement from her friends, Applejack hesitantly agrees. When Rarity finishes, Applejack is not too thrilled with the results and asks Rarity to wipe some of the makeup off. In the end, Applejack looks exactly the same as before Rarity started, much to Rarity's chagrin.

A Photo Booth Story is the second Summertime short. The animation primarily focuses on Photo Finish.

Summary

At the Fall Formal, Photo Finish is employed as the dance photographer. After taking a picture of the Crusaders, she is unsatisfied with the photo. When the Equestria Girls pose for their photo, Photo Finish suggests adding some style, with assistance from Pixel Pizzaz. The girls take pictures in various costumes and accessories, including Sherlock Holmes-inspired looks for Princess Twilight and Pinkie Pie and queen and butterfly looks for Rarity—all while Rainbow Dash and Applejack play pranks in the background. However, during one of the photos, Rarity's butterfly wings briefly catch fire. When they finish, Photo Finish declares this the pinnacle of her photography career and makes her trademark exit. As the girls laugh, Rarity asks if she can keep the wings.

Summary

As the Fall Formal continues, a country-western song that Applejack requested earlier starts to play. Applejack invites her little sister Apple Bloom to join in a line dance with her. Seeing their dancing as a competition challenge, Rainbow Dash invites Scootaloo to join her on the dance floor in a hip-hop breakdance. As the dance-off becomes aggressive and Applejack and Rainbow get carried away, Apple Bloom and Scootaloo separate from them. At Apple Bloom's suggestion, she and Scootaloo start their own dance routine, winning the dance-off and receiving a trophy from Pinkie. Applejack and Rainbow look disappointed in the Crusaders at first, but they compliment the two on their dancing, and Rainbow Dash asks for a rematch.

Unfortunately, while Pinkie is easily able to get the crowd going, Fluttershy can't get her voice above a whisper. After the game, Pinkie teaches Fluttershy how to cheer properly during the Wondertones' practice, and they later cheer for the school chess club, which actually requires them to be quiet.

Sunset Shimmer wants to contribute, but she doesn't have a pet of her own. Fluttershy asks if she wants one, but Sunset says she doesn't even know what to choose. Later, during the photo shoot in the CHS music room, Sunset becomes envious at how cute her friends' pets are and asks for Fluttershy's help in choosing a pet for herself.

At the animal shelter, Fluttershy shows Sunset an assortment of pets to choose from, but none of them really capture her attention.

Upon returning a third time, Celestia is interrupted again by Rainbow kicking a soccer ball against the outside of the classroom wall. The fourth time, the classroom telephone rings, and Celestia is called away to address an unspecified situation.

Music by William Anderson

The Art of Friendship is the tenth Summertime short. The animation primarily focuses on Pinkie Pie and Sunset Shimmer.

Summary

In art class at Canterlot High School, Pinkie Pie can't think of anything to paint. Sunset Shimmer tells her to find some inspiration and get her "creative juices flowing". Taking her advice literally, Pinkie gets a juice drink from Granny Smith in the cafeteria, but she still doesn't have any ideas. Next, she tries to find inspiration in nature by interacting with birds in the trees, but still nothing. Lastly, she tries finding inspiration by playing her drums. As she really gets into her drum solo, she taps her drumsticks on everything from the music room back to the art room, but still no inspiration strikes her.

Sunset tells Pinkie that, when all else fails, she should just paint a subject that she thinks is awesome and makes her happy. Feeling inspired by Sunset's painting of bright sunflowers, Pinkie Pie grabs some brushes and paint cans and paints wildly on her canvas, causing paint to splatter all over the art room. When she finishes, she reveals that she painted a portrait of Sunset Shimmer herself. Sunset decides to "paint" Pinkie as well, and she hugs her, causing the paint on Sunset to smear on Pinkie.

Epic Fails is an upcoming Summertime short. The animation focuses on all of the Equestria Girls as a whole.

Summary

During lunch in the CHS cafeteria, Rarity sees a picture in a magazine of Countess Coloratura falling over in yoga class and embarrassing herself. Sunset Shimmer muses about the thought of having one's most embarrassing moments broadcast to the world, and this gets the rest of their friends thinking about such "epic fails" they've had in the past:

  • Twilight Sparkle causing a chemical explosion in the science lab and spilling compounds all over herself and Spike
  • Applejack and Pinkie Pie burning some pies in the oven at Applejack's house and setting off the smoke alarms and sprinklers
  • Rainbow Dash kicking a soccer ball and knocking over a soccer ball display during her job at a sporting outlet
  • Fluttershy getting an embarrassing hair-styling from her animal friends in the park and distracting several passersby
  • Rarity getting a piece of lettuce stuck in her teeth while in the library, and Sunset Shimmer embarrassing herself while trying to tell her about it from a separate table

Back in present day, the girls claim to one another that they never suffer such embarrassing moments. However, on their way out of the cafeteria, they slip on the wet floor and fall over each other.

The Canterlot Movie Club is the eleventh Summertime short. The animation primarily focuses on the Cutie Mark Crusaders and Pinkie Pie.

Summary

Some time after the events of Mirror Magic, Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo of the "CMC"—or "Canterlot Movie Club"—go to the movie theater at the mall for another viewing of the new Daring Do film. All of a sudden, a dismayed Pinkie Pie appears before them and says she lost Gummy somewhere in the theater while buying candy. Inspired by the adventures of Daring Do, the Crusaders volunteer to find Gummy for Pinkie.

After a bit of searching around the mall, the Crusaders eventually find Gummy inside the claw crane game in the theater. After a few tries at the game, Scootaloo succeeds in winning Gummy, much to Pinkie's gratitude. With their "adventure" complete, the Crusaders head inside the theater to watch the Daring Do film once again.

Leaping Off the Page

Character(s) Rainbow Dash
Music by William Anderson

Leaping Off the Page is an upcoming Summertime short. The animation primarily focuses on Rainbow Dash.

Summary

In her bedroom, Rainbow Dash is eagerly looking forward to an afternoon reading the Daring Do books. She starts reading Daring Do and the Forbidden City of Clouds and imagines herself living Daring Do's adventures.

In Rainbow Dash's fantasy, she carries the Doomed Diadem of Xilati through a jungle. She is soon confronted by Slingshot of the Wild Bunch Gang—who strangely only communicates through car horn sounds. After giving Slingshot the slip, Rainbow Dash heads to meet with A. B. Ravenhoof's friend Brumby Cloverpatch. Along the way, she encounters a parrot that makes ringtone sounds, much to her confusion. Later, in a temple of animal statues, Rainbow hears a loud thudding and believes it to be Dr. Caballeron. When she leaps to the top of one of the statues to get a better view of the surrounding area, the statue suddenly breaks, and Rainbow screams as she falls.

Rainbow Dash's fantasy ends, and Twilight and Rarity enter her bedroom to find her sitting on top of her wardrobe. Twilight explains to Rainbow that Applejack had been honking her horn and she had been calling Rainbow's cellphone, but she wasn't answering. Twilight reminds Rainbow of the movie they and their friends had planned to see that afternoon, and an embarrassed Rainbow comes along.

Animated short summary

While feeling down at the Canterlot Mall, Flash Sentry sees Trixie carrying a heavy load and helps her out. His good deed starts a domino effect that spreads positive feelings to other people around the mall. That domino effect eventually loops back around when Sunset Shimmer offers Flash Sentry some sushi to cheer him up.

Lyrics

[Applejack] The truth that we have come to know Starts out small, but watch it grow [Rarity] Taking time to help each other Brings us close to one another [The Rainbooms] Beginning now starts something new Good deeds done out of the blue Put your kindness to the test You'll be amazed what happens next One small word can brighten the world around you One big smile can change someone's day A helping hand goes farther than you can dream Good vibes, so many different waves [Sunset Shimmer] Moments that you don't expect Spirits down, you're in the depths The world feels like it's lost the light But little things can make it right [The Rainbooms] Think of all the lives you've touched They come 'round and twice as much Friendship makes the world get lighter Blur the lines and make it brighter One small word can brighten the world around you One big smile can change someone's day A helping hand goes farther than you can dream Good vibes, so many different waves It only takes a moment to make someone's day Good vibes, good vibes It keeps us growing stronger, so let's hear you say Good vibes, good vibes One small word can brighten the world around you One big smile can change someone's day A helping hand goes farther than you can dream Good vibes, so many dif-fer-ent waves
